About

Meet Dr. Elisabeth Potter

Dr. Potter is committed to her patients, offering breast reconstructive, cosmetic and aesthetic procedure options. Her Austin-based practice is built uponexcellence, empowerment, education and extraordinary patient care.

Using innovative techniques to ensure a more natural, subtle outcome, Dr. Potter’s practice skillfully performs a full range of cosmetic procedures for the face and body. In comprehensive consultations, the expert team works closely with each patient to find the right solution for them – which may include a combination of surgeries and non-surgical procedures or treatments.

Having worked in the private sector as a regulatory analyst of FDA law, Dr. Potter possesses a uniquely informed view regarding the safety and efficacy of breast implants, and provides patients with safe, effective natural breast reconstruction alternatives.She specializes in the advanced DIEP flap procedure, which uses a patient’s own tissue to recreate a breast.

Leading with expertise and compassion, her mission is to educate each patient on their breast reconstruction and insurance coverage options, and guide them through their treatment plan as if they were her own sister - a practice that the Dr. Potter team warmly refers to as the “Sister Test.”

Patient Testimonials

“When I became very nervous about the increasing coronavirus spread in Austin, Dr. Potter and her co-surgeon Dr. Sprunt jumped through all the hoops (including a change of hospitals) to move my cancer surgery up a week so that I could have the procedure and be out of the hospital quickly to recover and "shelter in place" at home. My recovery has been almost painless as well as anxiety- and trouble-free, and Whitney and Sarah and Heidi and all of Dr. Potter's staff have been there for me whenever I had questions or concerns. I feel very lucky that I will have Dr. Potter and her staff there for me throughout the reconstruction process. Thank you all!” -Chrissi M.
“She is incredibly caring and nurturing. She's a fierce patient advocate and will go above and beyond to care for her patients. She's friendly and funny and kind and most importantly very honest. She's not the kind of surgeon to "cut" and run. She only offers options that are in the best interest of her patients. I trust her implicitly. You won't be able to find another plastic surgeon in Austin that is more skilled and more caring than Dr. Elisabeth Potter. Guaranteed.” -Denise D.
“Dr. Potter is fabulously gifted and a warm human being. I went to her after my initial reconstruction was botched. I was so afraid I would have to go through life with one breast smaller and deformed. Dr. Potter took all the time I needed to understand what needed to happen and what she was going to do. 10 weeks later I could not be happier. Not only do my breasts match but I have a beautiful belly.” -Julia B.
